The Milestone Hotel Review: With excellent views of Kensington Palace and Hyde Park just opposite, this grand late-nineteenth-century former private residence boasts an attractive Victorian façade. All the rooms are spacious, individually decorated and graciously appointed with beautiful antique furniture. Several of the stunning split-level suites and many of the rooms have king-size four-poster beds. As a listed building, the hotel has been meticulously restored according to English Heritage standards --- meaning original fireplaces, carved wood paneling, high ceilings and large ornate windows. For the ultimate in opulence and grandeur, ask for the over-the-top, multi-roomed Tudor Suite, which contains several original church fixtures, including a mounted choir. Guests enjoy attentive, personal service from the staff. Cheneston's Restaurant, which takes its name from an early spelling of Kensington, boasts an eclectic modern European menu and an extensive wine list. Again, the décor is all Victorian country-house-style, with plaster ceilings, flickering candle-style lights and a small private alcove off the main dining room. If you start your evening with an apéritif (or high tea) in the comfortable drawing room, featuring bookshelves and a baronial-style fireplace, you'll feel far removed from the bustle of Kensington just outside.
